Baton Rouge Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers
Slip and fall accidents are common in life. They can occur in various ways and can lead to serious injuries, from head injuries to broken bones. When these accidents occur due to the negligence of a property owner, they can lead to personal injury claims under the concept of premises liability. This legal concept means that property owners are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to provide an environment free of safety hazards. When they fail to do so, they may be held liable for the injuries their unsafe properties cause to others.

Will I need to pay any money upfront to get my personal injury started?
No, you will not need any money to get your case started or to initially meet with an attorney. We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid unless you recover money.
What is a deposition?
A deposition is a statement given under oath, usually done in a lawyer’s office before a court reporter. Witnesses called to testify in a deposition answer questions posed by attorneys representing both parties in a case. The court reporter produces a written transcript of everything said at the deposition and the witness can read and sign the transcript, swearing it to be an accurate rendition of the testimony given under oath.
What documents should I bring with me when I meet with a lawyer?
The more information you are able to gather for your attorney, the easier it will be for your attorney to determine whether your claim will be successful. You should supply any documents that might have a bearing on your case, including, but not limited to, collision reports, photographs and medical records. If you have not collected any documents, do not worry because your lawyer will be able to obtain them.
